Jobularity Releases Zumay, a Job Search and Personal Branding App
Keeping the candidate experience at the forefront, Jobularity introduces a sleek new app that not only allows candidates to quickly search and apply for jobs but also enables them to build their personal brand.
Santa Clara, CA, February 19, 2016 (Newswire.com) - Jobularity, an award-winning social recruiting platform, recently launched its first mobile app called Zumay. Within the Zumay app, candidates can search and apply for jobs directly from their mobile device. Job descriptions are supplemented with company videos that allow job seekers a “sneak peek” into the culture of the organization. A dashboard is built into the tool that allows job seekers to know exactly where they stand in the recruitment process. This transparency, as Founder and CEO Jeff Freeland points out, is a hallmark in providing a richer candidate experience.
"What's amazing to us is how the candidate experience is often times not thought of by applicant tracking companies,” Freeland said. “We feel the candidate experience is front and center in the job hunting process.”
In addition to job search, the Zumay app acts as a personal branding tool. A play on words from “résumé,” the Zumay takes the classic résumé and transforms it. This “next generation” résumé builder allows candidates to share their experience, goals, passions and skills within a rich and visually pleasing user interface. The media portion of the branding tool allows job seekers to record a video, adding a “human dimension” to the otherwise “flat” traditional résumé. In addition, video-based endorsements from former managers, colleagues and professors can be requested to validate past performance and current skills.
The Zumay mobile app is free for download at the iTunes store.
